Cancer Programmes

$2,875 - 6 month programme

From a doctor's perspective

these are the questions that are often asked

How should I prepare for cancer therapy to be as robust as I can be?

What can I do during chemo to reduce side effects and increase the effectiveness of the treatment?

What should I eat? Keto? Vegan? Mediterranean? Or should I be fasting?

Does fasting help or hinder?

Should I take supplements. Which ones? When? Could some be promoting the cancer to grow?

Should I be exercising or resting. If exercise, then what sort?


We know lifestyle and nutrition change can be difficult at the best of times. We know that it can sometimes seem overwhelming when combined with a cancer diagnosis and treatment. Health coaches are trained to support you with these changes at your pace, sensitive to the fact that you will be having good days and some bad ones. Your cancer program health coach will be there to support you and your goals.

What about fasting?

Fasting. Cells grow during the fed state. During the fasted state cells are repaired or replaced and recycled. The medical terms are apoptosis and autophagy. Intermittent fasting and longer fasts can be used as a tool to increase cancer cell death.

About Dr Goodwin

Anna is a Board Certified Oncologist. She has chosen not to renew her registration as an oncologist in New Zealand, feeling she can help clients just as effectively as a certified Natural Health Practitioner. Anna is unique, having a comprehensive knowledge of modern mainstream oncology and natural medicine. We know that people with cancer usually want to know all the viable options, not just half of them. No one else is as good at this than Dr Anna.

It takes so much time and dedication to obtain this knowledge. I can think of no other oncologist, that I know, that can gently guide clients through their cancer journey offering every opportunity to have the best possible outcomes.  Every cancer type is different and every individual cancer within each class is different. Then we are all individuals. Anna offers personalised evidence inspired care.

Some examples of the science

Walberg effect. Otto Walberg won the Nobel prize in 1930 for describing that many cancer cells use a primitive form of respiration (energy production) called glycolysis. This converts one glucose molecule into 2 ATP (energy molecules). Healthy cells convert each glucose molecule into 36 ATP molecules. Most cancer cells can only use glucose as a fuel while normal cells can use fats as well as glucose. We strongly advocate that people with cancer avoid sugar. Reducing the fuel supply to cancer cells must slow their growth and at a minimum increase their susceptibility to chemotherapy and Radiotherapy.

Nutrient sensors. Insulin, IGF1, MTOR and AMPK sense levels of macronutrients in the blood and then send growth messages to both cancer cells and normal cells. We can influence cancer cell growth by adjusting macronutrient intake. Lowering dietary carbohydrates lowers insulin and can turn of growth signalling. MTOR does the same with protein and AMPK senses overall calorie intake also offering an opportunity to influence cancer cell growth through Fasting.


“I encourage you to take this opportunity to optimise your treatment with evidence based adjunctive treatments, cared for by one of NZs most accomplished cancer experts.” – Dr Glen Davies
